Bass Solo is a music based web series with a comedic narrative. It follows the story of Leo, a bass player who's recently moved to Chicago to pursue his career as a professional jazz musician. While Leo struggles to get by in the real world, his peers are all excelling in web based ventures. He continues to be dumbfounded by the online successes of Chaz-his friend from high school-and new roommate, Brie. Leo stretches his principles and pennies as he meanders through the stark reality of freelancing and adulthood. 

Bass Solo strives to take the pulse on the current state of the music and art scene in Chicago while highlighting real local talent. Created by Heather Mingo and John Sutton, the show is loosely autobiographical with a flair for hyperbole and hilarity. 

We hope that you enjoy the pilot seen here. Our goal is to raise enough money to fund the rest of our 10 episode season. Your contributions will be going towards:

-Equipment rental (lights, camera, audio, etc.) to enhance production value

-Feeding the cast and crew on set

-Transportation to and from set for the cast and crew

-Location fees

We want to showcase all of the amazing talent that Chicago has to offer, from artists to local business owners. We appreciate any contributions you're able to make! And if you can't give, please watch our pilot and pass this along to someone who can. "Like" our Facebook page to keep up with our progress. Thanks for your time!
